You may think the ab-centric, on-the-mat practice is a no-go while you’re pregnant, but Keibler and her Pilates instructor, Nonna Gleyzer, beg to differ. While it’s not always easy to find a prenatal Pilates class, the workout actually makes sense for preggos: Though some standard moves need to be modified or skipped, Pilates focuses on alignment, flexibility and building a super-strong core and lower body. “It doesn’t seem like a strenuous workout, but you see the effects and get toned so quickly,” says Keibler, who’s been doing four one-hour-long sessions with Gleyzer per week since January. “And if a movement doesn’t feel right, I stop—I always listen to my body. It’s the best doctor!”
